C Class Burnout

I saw this clip on youtube demonstrating a burnout in C220 (W204)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CWjcQ4b8Fo

Is it even possible to do a burnout on an Automatic C Class ??? I'm guessing the car in the clip is a manual. Secondly how would you do it ? I would have thought Mercedes to have created the system not to let you do that.

i reckon its auto (imho)
because when i do burn outs in manual i dump my clutch and jump my left foot onto the brakes, ie. brake light only comes on when i let go of my clutch
in this video the brake lights were on even when it wasnt spinning the wheel, if it were manual the engine would have stalled
hence my guess

Actually I don't know how to do a burnout in an automatic car... I have only done it in a manual car.

Even if I turn off the ESP, I would have to leave the hand brake on and step on the gas pedal... That's how I guess they do it in an auto... Probably wrong though...

Yea I would suggest not doing that. I haven't tried in the 204 but in my 215 if you hold down the esp button long enough it will go off completely and then you can do just about whatever you want. You probably couldn't doing anything standing still in a 4matic regardless but the rwd guys should be able to.

The german comments underneath the video say it's a manual car, and that it's impossible to do with an automatic.

from N to Drive with rev up is how you can **** up your torque converter and even shred a gear or two.

easiest way to do burnout on auto is to power-brake (hold the brake with foot on gas) with the esp off. give it gas until the rear wheel start to spin and modulate the throttle.

dyno mode will just give you 1 wheel burnout which will look retarded because the 204 doesn't have LSD.

+1 But he had the first part right. Iv done many burnouts in Manuls and Auto's
Just put your left foot on the brake, turn off ESP, and give her hell.
Iv never done it in benz and wont do it mine. So I dont know if the ESP will interupt.

Burnout

Like the other dude said power brake it.
1. Turn of the ESP.
2. Pump the brake til it doesnt pump no more and hold it.
3. Hit that shizzattt into steptronic gear 1.
4. While holding the break hit the gas and watch it go.
5. Make sure no one is behind you as a possibility of being rear ended increases with all the smoke lol.

i can tell you that people with the 6spd can do it easily. 4matic never done it before but it can be done.

the question is; Why do you want to do a burnout in a nice car like the c300/350?

Just goes to show you even how much more torque the C300 has, I can break them lose with ease and now delay with my wimpy C300 and Automatic.
